The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
While driving my scooter on my way to work, was hit by a distracted driver. i spent several nights in the hospital and was later released to go home. i had a dislocated arm and was unable to drive any type of vehicle. I had to get to therapy and to school and bus did not get to the places i needed to go. Taxi service was an option but who wants to get inside a taxi after seeing how unsafe they drive in the road. Not only that, but prices for a taxi are extremely expensive. A friend told me a bout Uber and from then on i have been using it daily. Its a safe and affordable way to get around town. the drivers are friendly and i feel safe when I'm in the car. If it wasn't for Uber, i don't know what i would have done about school and therapy. Thank you Uber for being there when i need you.
